Curry County Hit And Run

A hit and run on Friday in Curry County New Mexico has left a woman dead.

A press release from the Sheriff’s office says deputies responded to the hit-and-run of a bicyclist on Curry Road K, between Curry Road 7 and 8.

When they arrived they found 57-year-old Dawn Renee Dozier of Clovis deceased at the scene. Officials say she had apparently been struck by a vehicle that left the scene of the crash.

A further investigation led to the arrest of 43-year-old Fernando Chavez-Molina of Clovis.

Molina is charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving bodily injury or death, a third-degree felony. He is being held without bond at The Curry County Adult Detention Center.

The Investigation is ongoing.
